Seems to be an automatic turn off to many people. The fact that the signers/musicians attempt to "package" the music to fit their beliefs and how they attempt (and succedd) in forcing their belief system on people leaves many with a bad taste.. However there are a few gems that are worth listening to. For example: Sufjan stevens. Sufjan draws a great deal of inspiration from Christianty. An aspect powerfully exhibited in his lyrics : Song:-To Be Alone With You I'd swim across Lake Michigan I'd sell my shoes. I'd give my body to be back again in the rest of room. To be alone with you. You gave your body to the lonely. They took your clothes. You gave up a wife and a family. You gave your ghost. To be alone with me. To be alone with me. You went up on a tree. I've never met a man who loved me The song is clearly about Jesus and his crucifixtion. that last part of my sentence must've made some to move the mouse to close this page. But you have to hear it..you just have to. Sufjan has this way of keeping it introspective, artistic and personal that doesn't alienate anyone. His music (his album Seven Swans specifically) was a more than a religious album. Much, much more. It was extremely spiritiual. My respect to Sufjan grew to unparalled heights due to that album. How he managed to express his faith and transform it to such a vivid musical image with such passion and such adoration, yet not pushing the listener away but actually keeping them urning for more; it was magnificent. A talent unlike any other. He was...geniue. To make a long topic short (and to cut my Sufjan Stevens fanboy rant). I want some good, spiritiual & geniune musician recommnedations. I want people to share musicians that left them wanting more from this genre.
